Convenience Store Law and Legal Definition

A convenience store is a small-sized store or shop that offers a limited range of grocery and other items that people are likely to need or want as a matter of convenience. Convenience stores are often located alongside busy roads, in gas/petrol stations or near railway stations. Both travelers and locals use convenience stores. Travelers who stop for gas or washroom facilities often appreciate the convenience of having food, drinks, reading material and maps available without having to go to a supermarket. Convenience stores have longer shopping hours and usually allow for quicker shopping and service. Prices in a convenience market are higher than that in a supermarket.
